Map of Wellington walks.

Whatever your mood, there’s a walk for you – whether you’re after a relaxing wander through our parks and gardens or keen for a more challenging hike around the coast. They offer unbeatable views, and most are only minutes from the city centre.

Walking-only tracks

To ensure public safety and enhance the experience for walkers and runners, some parks and tracks are closed to mountain biking and cyclists. To find a bike-free track, check out our Walking-Only Tracks map.  

Wild Wellington

Our city has been shaped by earthquakes, the greywacke hills worn down by wind, and the valleys carved by water. Extreme weather has created a rugged but resilient coastline.

Our native forests support a thriving ecosystem of birds, lizards and insects. To see the best examples of remnant podocarp/kohekohe-tawa forest in Wellington, visit Khandallah Park and Otari-Wilton’s Bush, New Zealand’s only native botanic garden.


Dogs must be on leads outside dog exercise areas. Please remember to clean up after your dog and dispose of the waste appropriately.
